Dan Svizeny New Hope Is A Bad Scene (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 29, 2014 11:35am | StereoGum
New Hope, PA is a picturesque little town tucked away along the Delaware River Valley, objectively beautiful but devoid of any real culture. It was made into a destination more through marketing ingenuity than any real attraction, self-mythologizing itself until it felt vital. Beyond some well-preserved buildings, a scattering of antique shops, and a few late-night haunts, it’s a sleepy town without much to offer. Singer-songwriter Dan Svizeny (formerly Cough Cool) grew up among the artifice and it rubbed off on him in a bad way because he’s pivoted to make sure he became anything but — his new album Every Weekend is heartbreakingly honest, his most personal collection of songs yet. Recorded “all alone, in an empty house, in a quiet town” after moving to New Jersey following a few years in Philadelphia, Svizeny channels his ennui into chilly but hopeful reverb-drenched tracks. On “New Hope Is a Bad Scene,” which he calls “one of the pop songs” on the album, he directly confronts his hometown. “It’s a bad scene that holds a special place in my heart. Everyone should spend a weekend there,” he says. “This song is about realizing how tired a local scene can actually be.” New Hope is focused on maintaining the status quo, only unique compared to the dreary mix of farmland and suburbia that surrounds it. Thankfully, Svizeny found the beauty in the fog and has created something really sp...
Music Go Music Inferno (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 29, 2014 11:33am | StereoGum
Earlier this year we heard “Nite After Nite” from LA band Music Go Music, which featured somber and lush atmospherics that gradually picked up speed, growing into a massive disco track. That was off of their upcoming album, Impressions, and now you can hear the band’s newest single, “Inferno,” which starts at full speed and hits with a propulsive disco groove, earning its title. Listen.

Johnny Aries (The Drums) This Grave Is My Bed Tonight (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 29, 2014 11:29am | StereoGum
Later this year, the Drums will release their new LP, Encyclopedia, from which they’ve already shared the single “Magic Mountain.” While making that record, the band picked up new member Johnny Aries, who is releasing Unbloomed, his debut solo album, next month. The UK singer brings a different vibe to his own work — from its jangly melodies to song titles like “This Grave Is My Bed Tonight,” it’s a nice exercise in Smiths-style melancholic pop. Listen to “This Grave Is My Bed Tonight” below, look for Unbloomed soon, and keep an eye on Encyclopedia, because it’ll be interesting to hear how Aries fits into the mix.

Cymbals Eat Guitars recently announced that they'd put out their third album, LOSE, on August 26 via Barsuk. After revealing two singles, "Jackson" and "Chambers," the band are now back with a third, "Warning," which is another example of CEG's ability to rock out in a big way. Check that out, with the other two tracks, below.
As discussed, the band have a record release show in NYC at Baby's All Right (8/26) on album release day with Grooms and "Bug Arms" (tickets), and they've now also just announced that they're opening Bob Mould's tour which hits NYC on September 10 & 11 at Bowery Ballroom, and 9/13 at MHOW. It won't be the first time they've opened for him. Tickets for those shows are still available.
Updated dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Embattled Folk Singer Michelle Shocked Made A CD About Digital Music Execs That Can Only Be Heard By Dogs
Jul 29, 2014 11:24am | StereoGum
Back in March, a funk band named Vulfpeck came up with a way to game the Spotify payout system by streaming an album full of silence to raise enough money to go on tour. The band ended up making almost $20,000 from the stunt. Folk singer Michelle Shocked is trying to do the same thing, but going about it in a slightly more political way. She recently released a album on CDBaby.com called “Inaudible Women,” containing 11 songs named after big-shots in the music industry. With song titles like “David Drummond (Google, Youtube),” “Robert Walls (Clear Channel),” and “Chris Harrison (Pandora),” she’s calling out people who run the digital streaming world. Shocked is associated with a campaign called CopyLike which, according to their website, is made up of artists who defend their copyright and intellectual property.
Cymbals Eat Guitars Warning
Jul 29, 2014 11:14am | StereoGum
LOSE, the forthcoming album from the Staten Island old-school indie rock guitar maulers Cymbals Eat Guitars, is shaping up to be something really special. We’ve posted the early tracks “Jackson” and “Chambers,” and both of them rule. And now the band has shared the wracked, speeding-out-of-control new one “Warning,” and it rules just as hard. Listen to the new song below.
Metallicas Lars Ulrich thinks he knows who will be headlining Glastonbury 2015
Jul 29, 2014 11:11am | Fact Magazine
Unless you were trapped in a cave this summer, you probably already know that US metal dinosaurs Metallica headlined Glastonbury Festival this year.
They brought their very American brand of rawk to Worthy Farm, and the crowd of chemically-enhanced young’uns responded (mostly) favorably. Well, if the band’s drummer Lars Ulrich is to be believed, Glastonbury are continuing with the metal theme, and may be tapping legendary Aussie/Brit legends AC/DC for next year’s spot.
Talking to Q Magazine, Ulrich said “”Can I throw in my first bid for who I think Michael Eavis has booked for next year? I have heard it might be a band whose lead singer is British, but none of the rest of the band are. Yeah AC/DC. Come on! Can you imagine that?”
It seems pretty decisive, but Ulrich of course could just be talking shit – I mean, we’ve all seen Some Kind of Monster, right? He also noted that he enjoyed himself so much at Glastonbury this year that he’d be returning with a bevvy of mates in 2015, saying “it doesn’t matter what anybody tells you about Glastonbury, you don’t know what it’s like until you experience it for yourself.”
If you fancy hearing a more informed opinion, check out what Joe Muggs thought of this year’s cavalcade of revelry (hint: it was pretty incredible).
Hear a tantalising snippet from El-P and Killer Mikes new Run The Jewels LP
Jul 29, 2014 11:11am | Fact Magazine
We can’t wait for this one.
El-P and Killer Mike’s Run The Jewels project was one of the surprise hits of 2013, and they’re getting ready to drop the follow-up in the next couple of months.
To whet our appetites, El-P has just shared a 1:40 snippet of new track ‘Blockbuster Night Part 1′, a bone-shaker of a beat that sees both rappers on brash and dextrous form.

Yes Im Leaving One (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 29, 2014 11:10am | StereoGum
Pavement famously dissed Smashing Pumpkins in “Range Life,” but what if Pavement covered the Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock”? It might sound a little like the harrumphing, clangorous “One” by Sydney trio Yes I’m Leaving. Comparison aside, this band’s trademark sound is far more abrasively scathing that anything Malkmus or Corgan ever kicked out — think Jesus Lizard, various grunge heroes at their most fiery, or a slimmed-down garage-rock version of Swans. They found a wider audience with last year’s frantic Mission Bulb, which Homeless Vinyl is reissuing this year. The label is also set to launch Yes I’m Leaving’s new Slow Release into the world this September. “One” is the first searing blast from the new record. (No, it is not a cover of Metallica nor U2.) Hear it below.

Run the Jewels preview new song Blockbuster Night Part 1

El-P and Killer Mike, tka Run the Jewels, are gearing up to release their sophomore album, the follow-up to last years excellent self-titled debut. In recent weeks, theyve shared a number of snippets, and today the pair offer their longest preview yet with a 90-second teaser of “Blockbuster Night Part 1″.
Though brief, the snippet does seem to indicate a continuation of what made the 25th best album of 2013 so entertaining, namely El-Ps brooding, minimalist production, the dynamic back-and-forth interplay, and cutting wordplay (a gold star to Mike for rhyming “cuckoo” with “buku”).
Listen in below:
According to a tweet from earlier today (July 29th), Run the Jewels 2 is “one day away from being fully mixed”. As previously reported, the LP is set to feature contributions from Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
A more substantial Run the Jewels offering comes on September 15th, when the pair release a new song as part of the 2014 installment of Adult Swims Singles Program.
The 10 Best TV On The Radio Songs
Jul 29, 2014 11:06am | StereoGum
Earlier today, TV On The Radio announced the fall 2014 release of their fifth album, Seeds. It will be the band’s first LP since 2011′s Nine Types Of Light, a strong collection that somehow never quite got its due. Why, though? Have we taken the band for granted? It certainly seems that way. After spending a few albums as reigning indie darlings and as one of the bands deemed suitable for the title of “the American Radiohead,” Nine Types Of Light seemed to go rather quietly. People liked it, but it didn’t dominate the conversation necessarily. This could perhaps be partially traced to the fact that, after three preceding albums over which the band continued to fake us all out and leap into different dimensions each time, Nine Types Of Light was the first TV On The Radio release made up of a bunch of songs that, conceivably, wouldn’t have been too far out of place on the preceding album. It was also much, much mellower. Maybe it’s not that we took the band themselves for granted — they’re clearly extremely talented artists. But maybe we took the experimentation for granted — perhaps not inconsequently, a similar narrative could be ascribed to Radiohead’s arc in recent years — and people just didn’t know how to react when TV On The Radio didn’t, well, shock them. Or that when they did surprise them, it was because they had decided to write more conventional songs...
